Macbook pro not booting, black screen

I have a macbook pro 2011 which is no longer booting up and leaves me with a black screen when i press the power button. The harddrive seems to be running as it is making a light buzzing sound and the sleep indicator light does light up. The device seems to be charging as it gives me a green light when plugged in. i tried doing SMC Reset and MBP boot which also did not do anything.

Dos it chime when you try and boot? Try holding down Option + Command + R for several seconds. This will attempt to connect to the internet recovery option. Check the ports and see if you hook up an external monitor click here
